Leguizamo Does America – Six-Part Series
“From Hollywood to the streets of East Harlem, Puerto Rico to D.C. Chicago and Miami – Leguizamo Does America is an honest look at the Latino experience in the U. S. and a reminder of the immense role we Latinos have in creating the identity of this country,” said Brenda Victoria Castillo, President & CEO, National Hispanic Media Coalition. “We applaud MSNBC for greenlighting this project, and encourage Hollywood to make Latino representation the rule, not the exception.”
Tune in this Sunday, April 16 at 7pm PT/10pm ET as MSNBC Films Premieres Leguizamo Does America, a new six-part series from NBC News Studios. Host John Leguizamo travels across the country to celebrate the rich and diverse Latino cultures in six different United States destinations, exploring food, politics, music, and everything in between along the way.
Watch as Leguizamo travels across the country to bring viewers inside America’s thriving Latino communities. From San Juan to East LA with some surprising stops in between, Leguizamo will celebrate the history, culture, food and other contributions of Latino people shaping America, from young actors sharing their heartfelt stories at a Washington, DC Latino theater, to the immigrants who transformed the city of Chicago, and the indigenous people of Puerto Rico who invented barbecue. It’s part politics, part road trip, part history lesson, all wrapped in a vintage Leguizamo adventure, showcasing the fastest-growing demographic in the nation.
